CHICAGO, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- Grains closed mostly lower Monday on the Chicago Board of Trade with the dollar index higher and equities lower on Wall Street.

Export inspections at 11.56 million bushes for the week were deemed bearish for corn in Chicago. Wheat traded lower with export inspections shy of expectations at 21.17 million bushels.
